Citizens are being targeted
by phone calls and emails, threatening them with prosecution for failing to
comply with jury service in federal or state courts.
In the calls and emails,
recipients are pressured to provide confidential data, potentially leading to
identity theft and fraud. These calls and emails, which threaten recipients
with fines and jail time if they do not comply, are fraudulent and are not
connected with Phoenix Municipal Court.
Phoenix Municipal Court does
not require anyone to provide any sensitive information in a telephone call or
email. Most contact between Phoenix Municipal Court and a prospective juror
will be through the U.S. mail, and any phone contact by real court officials
will not include requests for Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, or
any other sensitive information.
If you received a suspicious e-mail or phone
call, DO NOT give any information to the caller. Please contact the Jury
Assembly Center at 602-534-9931 if you have any questions.
